Yes, don't lety this get by. This is a scam. Complain to E-bay, and
make noises about computer fraud, police involvement, etc. He only
started telling you about condition just before the auction ended, and
never seems to have made a clear statement of its condition. He owes
you big time. On Mon, 14 Aug 2000, Jim Strickland wrote:
